King Henry VIII Doll - DK Wool
I love History and costume, ever since I was a little girl. This is King Henry VIII - 1491 to 1547. I have knitted Catherine of Aragon, and just starting Anne Boleyn. I have Cardinal Wolsey and Thomas Cromwell in mind too. Here is a little bit of history. Henry VIII was an English Tudor King. He was born at Greenwich Palace, London on the 28th June 1491. He was the second son of Henry VII. When Henry's older brother Arthur died, Henry became king in 1509. Henry had six wives: Catherine of Aragon - Spanish - Divorced Anne Boleyn - English - Beheaded Jane Seymore - English - Died Anne Cleeves - Flemish-Belgian - Divorced Catherine Howard - English - Beheaded Catherine Parr - English - Outlived Henry Henry died, aged 55 years old, on 28th January 1547 at St. James's Palace, London.
